Dear Sana, this speech goes to you. And you’ll get it today, because what you’ve invited us to today will knock over American presidents tomorrow.
We live in a chaotic world, where it’s difficult to comprehend the rules. Because, why are some poor and others rich? Why do some have to flee while others are safe? Why do people get spit on, on the street? And, why is it that even though you try to do something good, it’ll still be greeted with hate? It’s not strange that people give up. That we stop believing in the good. But, thank you for not giving up, Sana. Because even though sometimes it feels like it, no human stands alone. Each and every one of us is an important part of the huge chaos. And what you do today will affect tomorrow. It can sometimes be difficult to see how it affects, and usually you can’t see how it all fits together. But the effect of your actions are always there. Somewhere in the chaos. In a hundred years, we may have machines that can calculate the effect of every action taken but, until then, we can trust this; fear spreads. But, fortunately, love does too.
I hope that you will find yourself before anything else, that you will not run out of your house in the middle of the night just to search for the missing pieces of you in strangers. I hope that you will stumble upon a love you live to give away, the kind that flows endlessly, that lives forever. I hope you will be happy for a long, long time.
